I mean, sure. Splinter runs shy of 32 minutes, but it keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire duration. I'd say that a good 90% of the album is an edgier approach to modern cynicism. Isn't that what punk rock used to be about? Hard driven, catchy riffs rolled up in a bundle of thought provoking lyrics in short instances? With the exception of the alternative ballads (Hangover, Spare Me, Prison), I feel as if the album has been overlooked for its fast paced, "in your face" attitude in exchange for the general complaint that we didn't get enough of the album as we had hoped for. Not to take away from the experimentation tracks either. The lyricism for the entire record set the nihilistic message straight, and some of the alternative songs nailed the execution. It's insane that a classic song like "Da Hui" has completely fallen off of our radar. Wouldn't it be awesome to hear that track live? Again?
Anybody agree with me on this one? I definitely feel like Splinter had more than a solid effort behind it.
